Does anyone here have mirror-touch synesthesia?

    I think I probably do. Just wandering if I am the only one or if others can relate. It would be nice to hear someone else's experience. What I experience might sound fun but it is actually overstimulating, exhausting and limits me. It is a sensory issue for me.

    Thanks. Yeah - I had posted the other one but felt that I made too much of it. Thought maybe it would be clearer with this post that I was looking for someone who could relate. But it seems like I might not find that. I hate being unusual.

    euww, maybe a tiny bit, but not enough for it to be a problem.

    I never knew that was a thing until now but yeah, I guess I do a little bit? I have a lot of sensory reactions to visuals and audio (including having a visual reaction to audio, does anyone else have this?) but never thought of it as synesthesia. I guess it probably is. I always thought I just had an overactive and wild imagination but I guess it could be explained by that too. I’m also an artist and a musician and highly involved in creative arts so maybe that’s a helpful thing in that case. I see everything in pictures, but not just pictures, also appears in my brain like video. I asked my psychiatrist if it sounded like schizophrenia because I was concerned about it, but he told me it’s relatively common for people on the spectrum. Does anyone else on here experience those symptoms too??
